Rachel Warren: Just a follow-up question there. The story of Jushi's name is really interesting. Could you explain a little bit about that for me?

Jim Cacioppo: That January of '18 when we started and we've taken all this money and I had to come up with a name, so I searched the web, super sophisticated, me searching the web. I was messing around and I came across the Jushi Kingdom, which is in thousands of years ago in China and it was the first documented medicinal use of cannabis, which makes sense that it would be in China. They had this shaman type, we would call him a shaman today, who really believed in the product and recommended it to his followers medicinally and he actually buried with urns. When they found this tomb, the urns still smelled wonderful and you'd almost want to go in and try the product. They documented the number of ounces, it's all documented history. it's really cool and I was lucky to have found that name.

Warren: That is very cool and creative.
